Tracking the Tropics: Zeta made landfall near Cocodrie and Terrebonne Bay yesterday afternoon as a strong Category 2 hurricane – just 1 mph shy of Category 3 status. It brought tropical-storm-force gusts for some of our eastern areas in Ascension and Tangipahoa parishes, but most areas did not feel significant impacts in the BRProud area. It will continue to accelerate to the northeast and enter the Atlantic on Thursday, but not before it brings impacts to the Mid-Atlantic.
NHC is monitoring a tropical wave that may have the potential to develop into a tropical system in the southern Caribbean in the coming days. NHC is currently giving it a medium chance for formation. No imminent threat, but it’s something to watch. Next name on the list is Eta then Theta.
